If your dog has a litter of puppies(once), does that make you a backyard breeder?

I ask this because I asked a question about our litter of pups, and this lady didn't even answer my question but instead called me an idiot backyard breeder. Oh, and it's not like we are going to sale the puppies. We are keeping two, going to give one to my sister, and the other to her friend. They are pugs.

no I didn't do any Nessesary tests. But it was honestly not planned. The dog that was impegnated(my moms),was a pup herself(she's now 9 months. The last thing we'd want was for her to get pregnant. She's alright, luckily....but thanks, if I EVER breed, I'll make sure to take the right precautions; not that I know them all lol....oh, I'd never breed for profit. I understand that lots of ppl do and many innocent animals get the wrong side of the deal:(,so here's what I'll do: MAYBE when my sibe is at LEAST 2 years old, I'll breed her(I'll be as sincere to my dog-such as not overbreeding),and take the right steps(like I said, I honestly don't know what makes a good breeder. Anyway, here comes the funny part; I'll keep the puppies. I've always wanted my own group of huskies. The site I was on was yahoo answers. Which explains alot I guess. Anyway, sorry for ranting and thanks for your input.

About the pugs having health issues, I absolutely agree. I did research, a few years ago, my cousins pug went through having pups-nothing to do with me, she is a BYB. Anyway, when it got closer to Avery having her pups because of it I got so scared because of the breed we are dealing with! Don't worry, I don't want to go through that again!
No, I agree with you. I'll do my research and then some before anymore breeding(accident or otherwise), but I think the harshness needs to be taken down little.but the lady on answers did jump the gun a slight bit.but thanks, appreciate it.
But also, you are especially right; we should have been more cautious about her getting pregnant. Thankfully, she and the pups are okay, though. So, when is it the right time to get her spayed? Th pups are a month now and not weaned.
